From the belief that when individuals can support themselves, they can establish a sustainable and thriving community for generations to come, Pilot Light was born.
Carol Anne Levy
It was through Carol’s travels with UNICEF to Uganda that she made friends and contacts in Africa that brought her attention to the types of problems that Pilot Light is focusing on. Carol lives in Los Angeles with her husband and has two adult children. Carol has worked hard to build relationships in those areas hit hardest by poverty and malnutrition.
Carol also builds lasting relationships with collaborators, partners, and beneficiaries. She partnered with Delphin Muhizi of the Millenium Village Project years ago. After their successful collaboration, Delphin joined the Pilot Light team. For over six years now, Delphin has been working as Pilot Light Foundation’s Director of Programs (see below), and his regional expertise and residence in Rwanda allows him to supervise Pilot Light Programs regularly. Today their close friendship drives the success of programs throughout Africa.
